As India dominates the West Indies, Deepti Sharma shines



India defeated the West Indies with ease on Monday (January 30) at East London, doing so for the second time in the tri-series. They won by an easy margin of 8 wickets. West Indies have little to play for other than honing their skills for the next World Cup because the finalist were already known. But once more, their batting was ineffective.

They did have a good beginning, scoring 18/0 in the opening three overs. However, as soon as Deepti Sharma joined the assault, she castled Rashada Williamson with a stunning delivery that turned after pitching to get past the defense. The West Indies were subsequently placed on the back foot as Shemaine Campbell suffered a similar fate with the opening ball, falling for a duck.

The scoring rate substantially decreased even though Hayley Matthews fetched a couple of boundaries in the very following over. West Indies had only 46 points at the midway point. The dangerous wicket of Matthews was subsequently taken by Pooja Vastrakar as she top-edged a pitch to leave for 34. India completely dominated the match as runs were difficult to come by. Deepti concluded with astounding numbers of 3/11 as West Indies closed with 94/6. In her final over, she added one more wicket to her total.

Despite losing Smriti Mandhana early in the pursuit, the Indian team was never going to have any trouble reaching that mark. In one over, Jemimah Rodrigues pulled in a few goals and appeared to be in good form. After Mandhana was fired, Harleen Deol joined Jemimah in the middle but struggled to get going. Nevertheless, her firing had little impact on India's march.

As she quickly advanced to 20 off just 14, Harmanpreet Kaur was in the zone from the off, picking up boundaries at regular intervals. After that, she hit two consecutive boundaries off Zaida James before Jemimah completed the task with more over six overs left. India, which went undefeated in the competition, will now face South Africa in the championship game on Thursday.
